This film is less of an adaptation of Stanislaw Lem’s eponymous science fiction novel, as it is its spiritual continuation: during a trip in the USA Péter begins a search for any traces of his father, who left his family in the early eighties back in communist Hungary. The eccentric director György Pálfi interweaves the classic story of a hopeful reunion with fantastical elements, from people-gobbling giants wandering about at night, sex orgies and super weapons, all the way to a creepy faceless character. All this makes His Master’s Voice a witty, funny, and entirely mad science fiction essay thriller. Pretty unique.

In attendance of György Pálfi.
